“Dunes” at South Shore Art Center Festival

Last week, the South Shore Art Center informed me that my small work, “Dunes”, had been awarded an honorable mention at this year’s Arts Festival on Cohasset common. What a happy little surprise to brighten your day!

The piece is a respite from my current water-work, but in these smaller pieces I like to change things up from time to time. If you would like to come see the work, it will be in the big tent on Cohasset common for the weekend of June 17th – June 19th. There is an award ceremony for all of the prize winners at the stage on the common at 5pm on the 17th if you want to stop by and say ‘hi’ and glad a lobster roll or strawberry shortcake!

Canvas Studies

I had been posting on Instagram about a series of canvases I had been working on. They were in part an idea for a friend’s wedding and an exercise in loosening up at a large scale. I got a lot of great feedback on them so I wanted to share them as a whole. They are each 36 x 48″ framed in black, flush mount, solid hardwood frame.

The last of the series, Minot Tide, will be on view at the South Shore Art Center’s 60th Arts Festival June 19th-21st.

The first and third of the series, “Nantucket Sound, #3” and “Cisco” respectively, have already been SOLD.

Not what I normally do, but it was great to shake things up and work in canvas for a bit!

Cheers!

Myth & Memory at the South Shore Art Center

Along with the juried show, “Journeys”, that includes two of my pieces, I am currently in a small group show, “Myth & Memory” at the South Shore Art Center in the Dillon Gallery. The show runs from now until February 15th so please stop by if you are in the neighborhood!

Joining me in the show are fellow gallery artists Danguole Rita Kuolas, Michele Meister, Marie Peters, and Judy Rossman.

Journeys | Myth & Memory | ART Off the Wall

I’ll have 8 pieces in this show,  all of which have never been shown at the Art Center before. All of my work shown are multilayered acrylic paintings of sea scapes. The show is a quick survey of what I’ve been working on in this medium over the last year spanning multiple different series.

The South Shore Art Center is located at:

119 Ripley Road, Cohasset, MA

They’re open 10-4 Mon to Sat, and 12-4 on Sundays.

Thank you to everyone for all the support this past year, it’s been very busy and so exciting and I can’t wait to see what 2015 holds!
